Character encoding mismatch. You declare UTF-8 on the server but I
guess you wrote the page in Notetab, which means ANSI. Characters
other than the basic ASCII ones are encoded differently in UTF-8 and
ANSI/iso latin, so browsers throw a fit. Use ¹ and ² if you
want to declare UTF-8 on the server and all should be well. Or change
to iso latin on the server if you want to type the superscript characters.
